An inquiry into love and death – Simone St. James

October 28, 2013

love and death

A page-turner of a ghost story set in a seaside English town in the 1920s. When her uncle Toby dies under suspicious circumstances, Oxford student Jillian Leigh travels to Rothewell to identify the body and pack up his things. It turns Toby is a ghost hunter and when Jillian arrives, very strange and creepy things start happening. Then a handsome Scotland Yard detective shows up looking into his death and Jillian starts her own investigation by getting to know the neighbours in this small, mysterious village. And she can’t stop thinking about the detective either. I really enjoyed this novel – it is an intriguing story with perfect atmosphere, great pacing, and a great set of characters. It was pretty creepy though – I couldn’t read it at night!
